Is Boarding School a right Choice
Sending your child to a boarding school isn’t an easy decision as your child will have to adjust to a new environment. For some children the physical separation from family and friends is emotionally difficult. But the benefits of a boarding school far outweigh these problems. Living in a boarding school leads to learning which is more valuable than the education a child gets in a day school.
Living in a boarding school means the child is on his/her own. Of course, with plenty of support from faculty, advisors and peers. This leads to increased maturity, greater self sufficiency and superior preparation for the future. The boarding school environment encourages students to learn a little more about themselves and become a little bit more comfortable with oneself leading to a lot of personal growth and increased self confidence. The dorm mates in a boarding school become the best of friends who are remembered for life, which creates a support network.
Boarding schools have students from a wide range of geographic, racial and socio-economic backgrounds exposing the children to a wide range of individuals and cultures.
BSince the faculty in a boarding school is easily accessible throughout the day, getting academic help becomes very easy. Also relationships with faculty members and adults can better thrive in these multiple settings, creating learning and mentorship opportunities that are hard to find in other environments. Boarding school alumni are generally very enthusiastic and proud of their boarding school alma maters which creates a strong network of people and a feeling of community that lasts for life. The mission of boarding schools is not only to impart education in the classroom but to help children become better-rounded individuals.
